World refugee day

Event was held at the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga. Official speeches from the UNESCO representatives enriched the importance of the event and addressed the main concerns of the people who are forced to become refugees.

Event of ‘’World refugee day’’ followed up by workshops organized by volunteers. Human library workshop was the most interesting and sentimental one. Bringing the locals with the refugees closer and getting to know the human side of the people who arrived in Latvia through different routes and all the obstacles they faced during their journeys, what they shared was like living those moments with them, sad but inspiring at the same time. Giving up was not an option; the hope for a better future was and will be their and everyone’s motivation.
